A veteran Grand Rapids police officer has been charged with drunk driving and failing to report an accident.
Michael Thomas Rozema was arraigned Tuesday, Oct. 25, in Wyoming District Court. Police say Rozema was off-duty in the early morning hours of Oct. 16 when he was involved in a single-vehicle crash on southbound U.S. 131 near 54th Street.
According to investigators, Rozema's blood alcohol content was above the legal limit.
Rozema was placed on paid administrative leave from the Grand Rapids Police department after the arrest.
He is due back in court Nov. 17 for a pre-trial hearing.
